Small Rural Hospital Transition (SRHT) Project

The SRHT application period opens Wednesday, September 26, 2018 and closes on Wednesday, October 24, 2018.

Assisting Small Rural Hospitals to Prepare for the Future

The SRHT Project is designed to assist small rural hospitals in transitioning to value-based care and Alternative Payment Models (APM) such as patient-centered medical homes and hospital shared saving plans, as well as prepare hospitals for population health management. Onsite Consultations target financial and quality performance improvements that bridge gaps between the current health care system and the newly emerging system of healthcare delivery and payment. 

Transition to value resources are provided through Health Education and Learning (HELP) webinars and Performance Management Group (PMG) calls. Success stories and outcomes are showcased through Hospital Spotlights, and program examples that support rural hospital and network leaders in preparing for population health. Consultant recommended best practices and transition strategies are shared through the Rural Hospital Toolkit for Transitioning to Value (Transition Toolkit).

The Small Rural Hospital Transition Project is supported by Contract Number HHSH250201600012C from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Health Resources and Services Administration, Federal Office of Rural Health Policy.
